Jimmy Webb, best known as a songwriter ("MacArthur Park," "By the Time I Get to Phoenix"), recorded three albums for Reprise Records between 1970 and 1972, and a fourth for Asylum in 1974, without commercial impact, before subsiding into the background work of writing, producing, and arranging for other artists. But he came back to the forefront in May 1977 with the release of El Mirage on Atlantic, his most polished effort yet as a performer. On the Reprise LPs, he had seemed intent on erasing his image as a middle-of-the-road hitmaker, taking a more personal approach to his writing, rocking harder, and singing in a sometimes rough voice. But by the age of 30, he seemed to have reconciled himself to being more of a pop artist, and El Mirage reflected that. The music was produced, arranged, and conducted by George Martin, famed for his work with the Beatles, the strongest outside figure Webb had ever allowed into his recording sessions, and those sessions also were peopled by the cream of Los Angeles musicians, along with such familiar guests as members of Elton John's backup band and, for vocal support, Kenny Loggins and Billy Davis of the 5th Dimension (which had scored hits with such Webb compositions as "Up-Up and Away")... --William Ruhlmann
